Aldo was absolutely amazing! He did a fantastic job as our tour guide. He made sure everyone was comfortable, stopped multiple times for breaks along the way & was extremely informative and knowledgeable with the sites and history along the way. He took us to a great Italian spot for lunch in Williams, which was also a really cool place to see! All in all a truly five star experience. Highly recommend requesting Aldo as your tour guide!

This tour is a great way to visit Sedona & the Grand Canyon if you don’t have a long visit. The small group is perfect because the guide can alter stops according to your interests. Our guide, Noel was very knowledgeable about the area. Sit back and relax while someone else worries about the driving and where to go next!
